Fans of Atlus’ franchise have frequently bemoaned how the developer has handled its series’ releases, often limiting them to single platforms, but as evidenced by recent Persona releases, the developer is clearly stepping into the multiplatform arena. Interestingly enough, it seems like Shin Megami Tensei may be able to follow suit in the near future as well.
That’s as per a rumour originating on 4chan (via Reddit), which has seemingly leaked an image that seems to be confirming upcoming releases for multiple Shin Megami Tensei games on Xbox, PC, and Nintendo Switch. One of these is Shin Megami Tensei 5, which released for the Nintendo Switch in November 2021, and is allegedly headed to Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Windows, Steam, and Game Pass.
Then there’s Shin Megami Tensei 4 and its direct sequel Shin Megami Tensei 4: Apocalypse, both of which originally launched for the 3DS and are, according to the leak, coming to the aforementioned platforms and Nintendo Switch. Meanwhile, Shin Megami Tensei 3: Nocturne HD, which launched for PS4, Switch, and PC in 2021, is also allegedly coming to Xbox.
The leak claims that all of these announcements will be made on May 6, which is when Atlus will be celebrating the series’ 30th anniversary. Curiously, there’s no mention of PlayStation releases for any of the titles (barring SMT 3, which is already on PS4).
As is always the case with any unverified rumour, we’d take this with a grain of salt for now. We’ll keep an eye out for new details though, so stay tuned for more updates.
